Sustainability and the Humanities

This resource contains materials from a conference on 'Sustainability and the Humanities' held at Cardiff University on the 10th May 2010. The event was organised and led by Professor Geoffrey Samuel, Cardiff University and Dr Alex Ryan, University of Gloucestershire and Honorary Research Associate at Cardiff University. It was jointly arranged through the Body, Health and Religion Research Group (BAHAR) and the Cardiff Humanities Research Institute. Resources available here include the event programme and a PDF containing key slides from the welcome address by Dr Alex Ryan, outlining thematic connections between humanities disciplines and how they can engage with sustainability in academic practice, both in research and in reorienting teaching and learning. Audiovisual files from the headline presentations by Professor Geoffrey Samuel, Dr Colin Brooks, Professor Barbara Adam and Professor Justin Lewis can also be accessed at: http://www.bodyhealthreligion.org.uk/BAHAR/sustainability.html
